Debian Installer building (getting rid of user-mount hack and typo)


Recently, an updated syslinux got uploaded. It does not insist on mounting
images anymore. I've created a patch eliminating USER_MOUNT_HACK from the
$(IMAGE) target in d-i/build/arch/linux-i386. (But not from the clean target,
this might be added now or later.)
While testing (with "fakeroot make fakeroot make image", or rather with
"TYPE=net FLOPPY_SIZE=2880" added due to disk full errors), I noticed that the
assignment of the UDEBS variable at the top of d-i/build/Makefile has (for the
kernel udebs) a "\n" on the subsitution side of a sed s/.../.../ command, which
does not work with the woody version of sed. While this is clearly a minor to no
bug, I think a space would work as well in that situation.

Possibly, the elimination of USER_MOUNT_HACK should wait until syslinux 2.0.4
hits testing.
